are preparing for this hearing, it seemed like there was a lot of work that the city is doing and the police department is doing around the crisis intervention teams and i would like to go a step further in the new year to look at that and see how we are hitting our stride in the crisis response within the department and in putting this team together and the training that is really necessary for us to do the kind of policing that we know can deescalate the crisis that people find themselves in. i see it separate from the issue of tasers and electronic control weapons. it is almost like we are backwards in training a team to be able to deescalate violence and mental health crisis, and at the same time equip them with a tool that if used could have a detrimental effect on the deescalation, and also, it could open a door for, you know, greater usage within the department. that is my personal concern. and it has been a lot of people in san francisco share, i think that you can go out on the road in san francisco, and you can find a lot of people who are going to give, you know, license to the de

and the local grass roots organization of our city. i'm not going to get up here to oppose any candidates because it's clear at least four of these candidates are profoundly impressive in their qualifications for this type of work. but there is a problem and that is with public process. it's vital to remember that the reason we made sure that some of us fought so hard to make sure that neighborhood representatives were on this commission is that that is right of pa process of appointing them was supposed to entail going to those neighborhoods in depth and getting their input on who these appointees should be. for this to be noticed a few days ago at holiday time is very problematic to that process. just to show an example of why this is so important and why we need to wait until the second meeting in january to nail down these appointments, as impressive as they are, none of the appointees when they stood up said one word about the fact that the bayview hunter's point development area is a federal super fund site. 30,000 people in the bayview hunter's point signed a petition to put a me
new information on baltimore city's speed camera program. >> some investigation reported that three cameras had been erroneously issuing tickets. we have learned that the systems vendor launched an investigation of its sound and the results might surprise you. >> baltimore city's speed camera program has become a flashpoint for drivers after an investigation reported erroneous readings from at least three locations. it is a controversy that has literally shut down the street on the 1300 block of west coldspring lane. the contractor, xerox, conducted a massive test of the camera in eastbound on december 1 and second. city police closed all three lanes, sent a sedan, a minivan, and a 16-foot u-haul truck on repeated test runs clocked by a hand-held police radar guns and they could not recreate the problem. in this document, xerox tells the city's transportation director 189 valid test runs were completed and all speed readings were within the expected tolerance without anomalies. the letter also reveals that, since november 29, three cameras under heavy scrutiny come east and west dow
are getting in the city. that's something we have to look for as a city and i want to appoint people to bodies that look at our land use from that perspective, so i would like to support mr. steen in this position and would like to motion that. >> okay, so there is a motion to move forward on mr. steen to the board for this seat on the market-octavia citizen's advicery committee. i just want to say a couple of things. i was one of the members had brought up concerns about insuring that we had a low income perspective in the market-octavia citizens advisory committee. i want to really appreciate mr. wolff for really spending the additional time to do some work and some research around some of the issues that impact our lower income communities and appreciate the time you spent with me to sit down and talk about some of these issues and i think they are much more fleshed out and i understand your perspective a lot better. do you really think that your work is focused around small business development and i think that perspective is incredibly important for this plan, but i think in t
so we have to look at promise of our cities. san francisco bay area is a city that has great resources to meet the challenges of global climate change. this program, the cleanpower sf program is what we have. it's our greatest tool to assure we're doing our part around climate change around the world, and this little area of the world can actually make a huge difference, and that's what we have to decide how we're going to implement over the next few months, but the major work that we have actually accomplished by green lighting this program to move forward. i want to also emphasize that while we're actually implementing a program addressing our part with climate change and creating the clean power program in san francisco we're meeting a program that meets the needs of the city, not just around clean energy but employment and if we're successful in this program, and especially to the build out of the program that can happen when we have revenue coming in and many jobs can come with the build out and i am excited about that. there are neighbors in san francisco that are gr

either -- we would create that new position, have to go through the city process to do that or i would have to resign from my position. i am asking our clerk to call over and see if we could get somebody from the hr folks over here. >> i have a suggestion on this, but commissioner schmeltzer i want to hear from you before. >> thank you. just following up on commissioner avalos' point and what mr. fried is saying i guess i find it hard to believe that somebody can't be acting in a position and be considered for it. that seems to happen regularly and there is a search process but someone is the acting or interim during that time and fore does it seem possible he would have to resign to be considered so i think we need to get clarification on that. maybe we don't need to do that today. >> exactly. my suggestion is this and we want to make sure we hear from the public on this and unless i hear objection and obviously want to hear from the public on this and clearly we will proceed to make sure that that there is an expansion of duty so staff can focus on these other things, but beside

need to move forward quickly as a city. i want to make sure we're successful in the program. while we don't have all the details of the early notification and education plan there, the framework is clear and i think it's a good starting point to move forward for the city and i believe that while we have had comments about talking about caution i think they're well meaning how to have a successful program but i think the success of the program is that we roll out quickly with the notification and the education plan. that's going to be most meaningful. i also want to make sure that we're really clear that the effort is really working in the deep green areas first and foremost where we know a particular target audience is for the message and we know how to craft that message for them as well. i think that is going to be significant. we're not reaching out to every population in san francisco from the get go but the deep green area is where we need to focus the efforts on. this plan incorporates that and i believe it's the right way to go. i would like to move forward approving somet

and rental options, in particular given how much of a safety net that they are in the city and as a homelessness prevention measure right now. i think it's important to address the fact that many of the developers in the upper market area have been able to fee out of the inclusionary zoning requirements, which is an important tool as we work to create economically diverse communities within this project area. access to clean safe public open space is something that every resident in this area deserves and every effort needs to be made to prioritize open space preservation and creation. low income populations in particular are more likely to be victims of pedestrian-vehicle accidents so making intersections safer, particularly along upper market, is a priority of mine as well. so, too, are creating pathways in the form of service and support for better life outcomes for existing residents. so i'd like to see an emphasis put on economic and employment support that prioritizes local residents. something so much like the soma stablization fund that we heard earlier. specific
on the port, as well as the port, and all of the other city agencies that were required for this happen, so i want us to really celebrate partnership. there are many times when we're at each other's throats. every everybody who is a city employee around here knows that i am really happy to let lose and complain and criticize. all of that is part of making sure that what we wind up with is the best for the city and this is an example of that. we worked hard. we fought with the bike coalition because we want to make sure whatever bike path went down cargo way, cargo way okay was going to make sure cargo could go down cargo way safely. we worked hard with everybody who wants to come on this port and work here to make sure that they understand they have to be a good neighbor because they are part of this community, and the port is part of this community as far as i know, and i do quite a bit of environmental justice work and work with a lot of organizations around the country that are focused on port activities because port activities have a huge impact on health whenever -- wherever they r
language, or english as their second language. i believe that, as a city and as a member of the board of supervisors, we need to give this population of students additional courses, and an opportunity to invest in enrichment programs that can help some of the students succeed in school, if not all of them. additionally in reviewing our end of the year budget, and revenue projections, it's clear that our city is in much better financial position than we were a few years ago. and i believe that with the reduction in the supplemental that it's reasonable and within our means to support this request. thank you, supervisor kim, for your leadership on this matter. i would also like to stress to the school district leadership that's here that while i know you have -- that while i know that you have had to... contend with significant budget cuts just want you to know that we are supportive of you and watching and paying attention how you will account for these needs and costs for the budget process in the upcoming year. i will be supporting this item but not the use of rainy day fund to suppo
forward, because it is clearly a priority for the district and for the city, and, ñ the same time, be fiscally responsible. and so our preference is to move forward with the supplemental that would use rainy day and peef baseline funds. and not use any of the state supplemental reserve. none of the options we're talking about includes the rainy day. so would the mayor support or not support any of the three options that we are talking about right now, through the >> supervisor, jason elliott mayor's office, through the chair to supervisor campos. this has been an issue that's been debated and talked about for several weeks now. as the proposal involves fund sources of both and the conversation that budget director howard and deputy superintendent me young lee has been centered around using the rainy day reserve funds which are available, and on using a peef balance which has grown a bit in recent days. so combining those two sources, the rainy day money and peef money does actually total up to the amount requested. so your question to us, as i understand it, is what is the mayor's

the infrastructure, the pedestrian safety, all the promises and commitments that we made to the city when we said that we would build of course these neighborhoods and of course that we ensure that these are diverse communities really reflective of san francisco residents. with hunter's point shipyards, i mean there we are really protecting a community and a promise that we made to existing san francisco natives. there is so much that we need to deliver in bayview hunter's point. we really kind of look upon this commission to move forward with that commitment and promise and we really ask the community to engage with this commission and we ask the commission really to listen to the community and reach out to them as well on your own time. i think that that's very important and there are many community leaders that have been long active on these 3 area plans and we encourage you to meet with them. i know this is a huge time commitment but i think as much of that work, it's very important as we wind down the responsibilities of the successor agency. so again, happy to move forward theo ellington f

the peninsula and: easy drive time. 23 minutes out of the bottle into the city. >> overnight we had a strong earthquake in the northeastern part of japan. it was a 7.3 earthquake and the same area where we had a 9.0 earthquake years ago that killed 2000 people with the following tsunami. this earthquake took place around 518 local time around midnight in san francisco. 2 mi. off the japanese coast and was followed by many aftershocks were 1/6 point to a 5.0 and several romney for mark. here is a video from tokyo as several hundred miles away buildings swayed for several minutes. no reports of major damage. there was a tsunami warning issued and a small tsunami did it. it was three to 4 ft. high. they're watching the after shocks after the 7.3 earthquake on to the japanese coast. >> a man fell from the upper deck of the coliseum last night at the raiders' game. will tran is joining us with the details. good morning well >> good morning darya. it happened shortly after takeoff and he fell from the upper deck to the lower concourse. that is approximately 30 ft.. it is amazing he survived. the a
in this city. i hope that more resources again, go into educating people maybe, even on on the in the school levels where you have a lot of young people, a lot of people in elementary school age who are being exposed to violence in their homes. and that they learn early too that that is not the type of behavior that they should be engaged in as they get older and as they grow up. because we know frequently that the people who are witnessing this type of situation themselves they say, become perpetrators so i just hope that it leads to more education, in the schools. and it leads to more education from people who are being exposed to violence. and so that they understand how to extracate themselves from the domestic violence situations and that there are more resources given so that women and men who are in domestic violence situations where the means to extricate themselves because that is frequently not the case, the people from the working class and lower income don't have those means. and people who are not from that economic class, don't always have the self-awareness, or the education t
